    exactly. No point in spending a lot of money on shoes with the sole purpose of getting wet to/from work.

    I use galoshes or overshoes... I have a massive pair for my construction boots and would get a smaller pair for dressier shoes.... amazon has a bunch of different models but I just found my locally for cheap. I'd imagine any decent tailor would have nice fold-able ones for shoes. They work really well.

    It looks hot, but it's not. A seven hundred dollar MTB, nothing special. It weighs a lot. I replaced it as my everyday ride with a hybrid and this one has been relegated to rain bike status. If I ever make plans to do some mountain biking, I'll have something I can use after a quick tire change. That plus it's excellent suitability as a rain bike grants it a well earned stall in my small bike stable.

    My solution, too. I use some discontinued Adidas SPD sandals, previously had a pair of Lake SPD sandals for five or six years until the sole plate broke. Great in the rain, down to the low 30s F, when it gets colder I add waterproof socks. When it gets really cold I switch to boots. But the sandals are good for 90+% of the year.

    Keen Newport H2's. I never ride in a shoe without a decently durable toe.

    I wear running shoes every day on the commute. If it looks like rain, I have a pair of gore-tex waterproof ones that I wear. They get a little hot in the summer, but they work well & look ok.

    Socks get cold and soggy, bare skin is much warmer than damp socks and shoes.

    My feet get cold, even when dry, at any temps below 45 or so. It really surprised me, when the rest of me is so warm. So I wear a pair of gore tex hiking boots for cooler weather like that, and running shoes for warmer weather. I'm looking forward to trying sandals if spring ever springs around here.

    That's what I use too. I bought a cheap pair of Sette from, IIRC, Pricepoint or maybe they were the Nashbar brand which were identical to the Settes. Aaaannnyyyy, they are really comfortable and work really well and are very, very walkable (I used them for normal walking sandals before I mounted the SPD cleat - the cleat, while recessed, does tend to click on some surfaces though).

    SPD sandals (cheap Exustars) when it's warm. Lake MX 140 winter boot when it's cold. Neoprene booties in whatever shoes I am wearing all other times.

    I use Speedo Men's Hydro XP Pro Water Shoe, like the ones in the images and love them. They're awesome, cheap, comfortable, dry fast (rains a lot here in South Florida)

    Yea, Shimano Sandals, + wool socks, + goretex boot liner socks work when cool, and wet.

    The sandal straps adjust, just fine, for thicker and thinner socks ..

    I use LL Bean boots because I don't live in South Florida.
